Many of you are hearing about Raghurajpur for the first time.It is a heritage craft village in Odisa, Puri district. Where every villager is an artist and extremely talented in their field.I feel proud to see that such great artwork exist in india.
It is situated 14 km away from Hindu pilgrimage town of Puri, on the southern banks of river Bhargabi (Bhargavi).
Raghurajpur is also home to crafts like Tussar paintings, palm leaf engravings, stone and wood carvings, wooden, cowdung and papier mache toys, and masks.

This video depicts the dark story of these artists.
The artists and me strongly believe that, to improve their economic condition these artists should have their own website to sell their beautiful work online without any middlemen.
I wish that soon these artists will be getting what they deserve.
